Vanessa Diffenbaugh - We Never Asked for Wings CoverWe Never Asked for Wings by New York Times bestselling author, Vanessa Diffenbaugh will be presented on Wednesday, August 19th at 7pm in the City Hall Council Chamber.

Vanessa’s powerful New York Times bestseller debut novel, The Language of Flowers, sold in more than 40 territories and spent a staggering 69 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. In her deeply moving new novel, Vanessa explores young love, hard choices, second chances, and what it means to be a family. 


NPR called The Language of Flowers catnip for book club and We Never Asked for Wings will more than likely follow suit with  discussion-worthy themes ranging from motherhood and young love, to inequality and undocumented immigration.
